According to sources, two Rockets appear on the All-NBA Teams. And they are the usual suspects.

James Harden appeared on the First Team for the fourth season in a row. He averaged a league-best 34.3 points per game, winning his third consecutive scoring title. He also averaged 7.5 assists per game. It’s Harden’s sixth First Team selection in seven seasons, and he joins the team alongside LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic and Anthony Davis.

With his sixth First Team selection, Harden joins Hakeem Olajuwon as the only Rockets to complete that feat.

Russell Westbrook also made the All-NBA Third Team in his first season with the Rockets. It’s his second consecutive year on the Third Team and his ninth All-NBA selection in ten seasons. Westbrook averaged 27.2 points per game, his highest scoring average since his MVP campaign in 2016-17. He joins Ben Simmons, Jayson Tatum, Jimmy Butler and Rudy Gobert on the team.

The Rockets were the only team other than the Lakers to have two All-NBA teammates.

Congrats to Harden and Westbrook for making the All-NBA teams!
